Readings Launches Online E-book Store With SPUNC

This week sees the launch of a new online e-book store in Australia. Independent chain bookseller Readings has launched a dedicated e-book store. E-books bought on the site will be readable in a variety of formats - smartphones, tablets, PCs and Macs.

In an innovative deal, the bookseller has partnered with Wheeler Centre resident organisation SPUNC, the Small Press Network. It means that many of the authors published by the small, independent publishers that are members of SPUNC will be available in e-book format for the first time.
